Tiger Woods Hosts Hero World Challenge


Tiger Woods has an extremely busy schedule the next few weeks. The golf legend is hosting his 18-man Hero World Challenge this week. The exhibition event will run from Wednesday to Saturday and all 18 golfers will be guaranteed 72 holes of golf in the Bahamas without the stress of missing a cutline.

The 18-hole championship golf course is designed by Ernie Els. The links and desert features on the par-72, 7,400-yard golf course demand the golfers play strategically while trying to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The course boasts seven eagle opportunities with the par-fives and drivable par-fours for the longer hitters. With fairways typically wider than what the pro-players are used to, they will swing away without much fear as water only comes into play on three holes.

According to tournament rules, all players that compete in the event shall be ranked in the top 50 in the world, excluding sponsor exemptions. However, this year, all players are ranked in the top 50. World No. 4 Dustin Johnson withdrew from the event to continue physical therapy from knee surgery and to ensure he is in top form for the Presidents Cup that starts Monday, Dec. 9. Chez Reavie will be replacing Johnson in the event this week.

Ten years ago, Wood’s picture-perfect family was torn upside down after his infamous car crash after a dispute with his wife at the time. Woods has put all that behind him and has put his personal life and professional golf career back on track.
